To the family of Waymond, Lisa and I send our condolences and sympathy in this time of sadness. We feel your pain as we look upon Waymond with deep affection. It may seem as though he and my mother were together just a short time in their lifetimes but I grew to know him as a kind and gentle man and I know that he made my mother happy. My wife and I will surely miss him and he will not be forgotten. We feel blessed that we were able to spend time with him in July and he and his family will be in our prayers.

I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to the Douglas family during this difficult time of coping with the loss of your loved one. Our Heavenly Father will soon fulfill this promise. "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." 1Corinthians 15:26. This cause of pain will no longer exist. Tears of sorrow will be replaced with tears of joy. Until then may you be comforted and strengthened by Jehovah, family and friends.
